Video: Road-legal Formula Ford EcoBoost takes on rivals

With 200bhp on tap and a kerb weight of 495kg, the road legal Formula Ford EcoBoost could be the future of sports cars, track cars, and even supercars

You could argue Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost-powered, road-legal Formula Ford is just a marketing exercise. But from an engineering – and a petrolhead’s – point of view it’s a whole lot more relevant than that; an intriguing gaze into what might be achievable for sports cars of the future. In the tail sits a 200bhp version of Ford’s three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, and although there are headlights, indicators and even a handbrake to justify the numberplates, to all intents and purposes this is a racing car that will never be raced.
